Welcome to GOD HAND! It's a game where you beat up demons! It's also INCREDIBLY FUCKING AMAZING.

Nintendo has a very well refined game design process. They take all their old ideas, put them on a bingo board, and play through a round.

Bad Mojo is a part FMV, part 2-D puzzle, game that was originally released back in 1996. Loosely based on The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, the game puts the player into the role of a common cockroach and tasks them with making it through a series of household areas while trying to avoid the various traps and hazards they contain. Although the game is pretty short (It can be beaten in about an hour if you know where to go) it sold well enough when it first came out to warrant a re-release in 200...

|Resident Evil 1-3 & CV:X - DO IT TO IT|
Resident Evil (titled "Biohazard" in Japan) was released on the Playstation in 1996 and was directed by the now-heralded Shinji Mikami. It was one of the very first games to establish the phrase "survival horror." Known for its sluggish controls and bad voice acting, the classic game has now sold over 2.7 million copies. It established the concepts and characters that would stick around all the way to the recent Resident Evil 5, such as Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker and the T-Virus...

Dead Space is a game that just kind of happened. Electronic Arts has never been known for releasing survival-horror, and Redwood Studios only did licensed work, like The Godfather and The Simpsons.
